Calling for the re-opening of railway

Profile image for Wells Journal

By Wells Journal | Thursday, January 10, 2013, 11:00

A petition has been launched asking the Government to reopen the Somerset and Dorset Railway.

Created by James Type, the petition asks "For the Government to consider reopening the Somerset and Dorset Railway, this is now a much needed transport link from north to south."

The railway went from Bournemouth to Burnham-on-Sea via Shepton Mallet, Glastonbury and Wells and closed to passengers in 1966.

The petition closes in November. To sign go to epetitions.direct.gov.uk/pe titions/41959.

    There you go! This was something I was keen on doing when I was 11 back in 1985/86
    I was featured then in the Wells Journal collecting signatures around the City of Wells.
    It's good to hear this topic is once again popular.

    Unfortunately there is a break in the link to the epetition...petition has a gap in it, so will not open. Good luck.
